11. This is our custom regarding the order of lighting the candles. On the
first night, one should light the candle on the far right. On the second
night, one should add another candle to the left [of the previous night's
candle]. Similarly, each night, one should add a candle on the left side.
[Each night,] one should begin by lighting the candle one has added, and
then continue lighting towards the right.
